Would I be a real wedding blogger if I didn't comment on the glorious Royal Wedding that has just passed us by? I think not!
I'm ashamed to say that I actually got a speeding fine on Friday night while rushing to get to my friend's house in time for the vows. I didn't even make it after all that either.. (thank god for replays). There, we sipped champagne, ate scones and analysed the wedding.
There's not a lot to say that has not yet been said.
- The dress = amazing (for her - though not quite my taste). It was so like Grace Kelly's dress and oh-so fitting for a princess. (while i say not my taste, i guess this is because i am a rustic bride, not a princess bride!)
- Pippa's dress = also amazing.. and this time more to my taste! I never like a cowl neck, but somehow it worked. What wouldnt work on that figure though?
- The flowers = lovely. I could see these translate into a rustic event too.
- The ceremony = 100% dull. If the bride and groom look sleepy, you can only imagine how those guests at the back of the church felt!
- The Kiss = a bit passionless and quick. I was disappointed. They had to replay it in slow motion to make it seem decent!
Isn't it funny how the wedding itself can seem so long, boring and lacking intimacy.. yet a highlights package makes it look like the most sweet romantic event? Shows the importance of photography!
My only real thought over the weekend was for Pippa Middleton. How lucky is she???
- Not only did she get to participate in the wedding of the year and be a (semi) princess for the day...
- She got to do it with lower stress levels than Kate.
- She probably hooked up with Harry (who is clearly the more fun of the royal brothers)
- She now gets to have her own normal wedding (and must secretly have been thinking "my wedding will be so much more fun than this one!!" during all those hymns on Friday.
She really does have the bet of both worlds right now!
